This makes a pretty good ricotta goat cheese, but people should be aware that this is not the cheese people usually think of as "goat cheese." This is goat cheese because it is made from goat milk, but the tangy, flavorful soft cheese most people think of as goat cheese is called Chevre. This recipe is like the ricotta you would use in lasagna, which is typically a blander grainier cheese. It can definitely be eaten like Chevre and used in recipes, but will not have that rich tang like traditional Chevre. To get Chevre, you need to use cultures and need to ripen the milk with them to get the flavor and texture you would expect from "goat cheese."
